Jandyra Waters (1921 > ) began her career in the sixties. Her organic
abstraction not only privileges the primordial trait but also the longestlived
anthropomorphic imaginaries, which invites the spectator to complete
the experience. From this gestural abstraction, the artist begins to develop
in her most recent works forms that explore the potential of geometric
laws: such as progression, unity and rhythm that combine the constitutive
elements, such as lines, areas and colors.
A feature that stands out in these works is the juxtaposition of the principles studied by the concretists of her generation, to which Jandyra adds a playful accent, with vibrant colors and daring combinations, warning that art is a kind of accident of matter. At
over 100 years old, she is now recognized by critics for her work that ranges
from rigid geometry to representations of the “diform-forms” of nature.
